Take 10 Challenge

My head has been stuck in one project for so long that I've decided to have a bit of a stop gap before starting the next novel. I've decided to write 10 new short pieces and enter them into competitions. It's the writers' equvilant to taking a break (Take 5 - hence the loosely themed title) and if anyone wants to join me then please comment below. I will add a list below of what I have completed and the competitions I've entered.

  • Set your own time limit. I'm aiming for the end of July.
  • Both fiction/non-fiction count towards the total. 

  1. Paragraph Planet - a 75 word story. 
  2. A short story
  3. Paragraph Planet
  4. A short story 
  5. Flash Fiction  
  6. First Chapter

  1. As my fingers type, I have a feeling I may live to regret this but seeing as I'm having a 'holiday' from writing for a few weeks, then, yes, I'll join in.

    1. Tee Hee :) I'm sure it will be fun, she says, not really knowing what she's set herself up for. :)

  4. Thank you Catherine .... A great idea and quite a challenge! It's good to cleanse the palate between novels, so this is a kind of 'short story sorbet' . Except most people only manage 1 sorbet rather than 10! But good luck! (oh and thanks for picking PP as your starting point)
